For the most part the teachers are fantastic. The principal on the other hand is mostly defensive and not helpful and sets the tone for the rest of the administration that follows her lead. Instead of finding solutions to issues the administration will cover things up and usually just be defensive about everything. The answer is usually you can't do that instead of this is what you need to do. Its not hard to just be honest, transparent, and be a leader that provides solutions. This is not politics,,, its education,,,

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral

Murdock Elementary is a great school! Both of my kids had a wonderful experience Kindergarten - 5th grade. The principal is great and the teachers work hard to ensure student success. My kids worked hard but had a blast.

My children have attended this school for 3 years now, and I could not be happier with the experience that we've had. We have not had an unpleasant experience with any of the teachers or administration and I am so thankful that we chose Murdock. I could go on and on about everything that they've done for my boys but I cant without crying! I could not have imagined a better Elementary school, especially for a kid with special needs....FYI- Ms. Hamlett (the principal) is absolutely amazing!

My daughter went there for 1 year, terrible experience. Told the Principal about on ongoing teacher problem that she kept promising she'd handle. Never did. An honor student and loving school when she entered the school, a year later an honor student and hating school. Thankfully we found a great private school.
